Cybergenetics sexual assault awareness month activities
Cybergenetics empowers women by teaching the importance of DNA evidence in sexual assault. During Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Dr. Ria David lectured to college students on Pittsburgh campuses. She spoke at Chatham University, Duquesne University, and the Community College of Allegheny County.
Dr. David says , "It is important for students to know the truth about DNA evidence." Unlike CSI television, poor data interpretation can render DNA ineffective, impeding a sexual assault investigation. She says, "When someone is sexually assaulted, they should preserve DNA evidence for identifying the assailant." Knowing DNA issues helps victims advocate for real justice and find closure.
